8:02 am
for those stranded in northern iraq. >> american forces have so far conducted two successful air drops delivering thousands of meals and gallons of water to the desperate men women and children. american aircraft are positioned to strike terrorists around the mountain to help forces in iraq break siege and rescue those trapped there. >> mr. obama wouldn't give a timetable for how long the military involvement would last saying it depends on iraq political efforts. he says it won't be weeks but it will take time. the president says the advance of the islamic safe forces was more rapid than anticipated. mr. obama is headed to massachusetts with his family for a summer vacation. crews are cleaning up a chemical spill on i-880 after two big rigs were involved in an accident about 4:30 this morning north bound before the washington avenue off ramp.

8:05 am
selling tickets. notice how real these look. even ticket master is printed on the bottom. it is made clear counterfeit tickets are void. they will not let you in and many found that out the hard way. >> we were given counterfeit tickets. we tried to get in. i am trying to get into a [bleep] venue man. i understand we were sold fake tickets. >> reporter: some people tried to get in without a ticket at all. here are some of the citations issued for those trying to sneak in. if you have a real ticket and are coming today expect heavy traffic. public transportation is your best bet to get to golden gate park but allow extra lines on all -- time on all lines coming to the park. tickets are sold out through the festival though you can find some through reputable online retailers but they do not come cheap. we'll tell you how much you are
8:06 am
expecting to spend. >> thank you. lane closures underway that could continue for the next couple weekends. crews are realigning approach lanes to the second. the realignment will make the approach to the bore smoother. the work could cause significant traffic issue for people headed east on highway 24. the bore will be closed from 8:00 p.m. to noon this weekend and then from 8:00 p.m. until 7:00 am monday morning. if the crews don't finish work, closures will happen next weekend. officials say people traveling east on highway 24 should expect delays up to a half hour. still ahead, clean up begins in hawaii after tropical storm iselle brings high winds and heavy rains. >> one arrested for starting the massive wildfire in yosemite last year has been indicted. >> we'll take a live look

8:15 am
good morning. thanks for starting with kron4 news weekend. we are focusing on the temperatures. it is colder. in addition to cooler temperatures we have the component of a breeze. san francisco is at 69 degrees. -- 59 degrees. we have a deeper marine layer. that is bringing extensive cloud cover into the area. it will burn off by this afternoon. we are tracking an approaching area of low pressure. it will park over the central bay and tap into subtropical moisture. into tomorrow, we could see a few showers, thunderstorms, for the north bay and east bay looking at a 10% chance with models starting to back off on the possibility. the moisture will stay north and east but it looks like it will be moist and muggy into
8:16 am
early monday. again we'll continue with that potential for some showers. seasonal temperatures today, mostly sunny skies with mountain view at 77, 80 in sunnyvale. there are no 90s in today's forecast. it will a touch cooler in oakland at 73 and 62 in you are heading to ocean beach. if you are spending your weekend in outside lands expect foggy conditions for morning, sun breaks by afternoon with temperatures in the mid to upper 60s. it gets cool during the evening. if you are sticking down for a later performance, bring your jacket. we have unsettled possibility sunday night into early monday. >> thank you so much. operation homefront making sure the families of wounded
8:17 am
service members and wounded warriors are protected in any situation. it's a nonprofit national organization and joining me to talk about the project is david gates. thank you so much for joining us. >> my pleasure. >> david oats. sorry. >> that's okay. >> let's talk about this latest project, to help the school children of our vets. >> it's one of the programs that's a perennial for us. we will service 4000 children of service members in the state of california alone. as expensive as it is to live in the state particularly if you are a young service member with families school supplies can bust a budget. we will put 4000 back packs in the hands of service members, children, as well as the new school supplies to get them ready for the school year. >> this isn't the first year you have done this. >> it's national too. we have it going all over the country with various operations and things of that nature.
8:18 am
it's one of the scenarios where the slightest up tim in a budget for a young service member with a spouse or kids can make or break whether pay the bills. we are in existence to be sure that the more that they can focus on their job because they know their families are taken care of. as they're deployed overseas in afghanistan and other areas of the world the more they're going to be able to focus on that, better tale be able to do -- they'll be able to do their job. >> operation homefront came about because of 9/11. >> right. it was a homegrown project started in southern california as service members were deploying at greater length and more frequently families needed help at home and citizens got together do that. it has over the years since formalized head quarter in his san antonio. in california we take care of service members and veterans and wounded warriors all over.
8:19 am
it's grown into a wonderful national organization. >> this is a labor of love for you because you know the situation being a vet. >> sure. you know, especially in califoall the military installations we have. it's not uncommon to see a lot of people in the private community. we knew what it was like deployed, family separations. we knew what hardships were for those left behind as we are doing our work. now i get to pay it back on a small level. i am happy to do it. >> this backpack program is one of many operation homefront is involved in. >> we encompass a wide range of needs from housing for wounded warriors, job training, veterans, assistance needs, emergency financial assistance programs for families. if they need car repaired and don't have the funds that can be debilitating for somebody that needs to get kids to school. we have programs in place that
8:20 am
we will identify. we will solicit needs from service members and their families and see what we can do to help. it is a constant demand we are trying to meet and we are happy to do our part. >> tell us about some of the specific demands or needs that families have that the general public may not consider. >> i don't think people understand the sacrifices that particularly junior enlisted people have in the state. they're paid fair but not exhausted exorbitant wages. it becomes a balance to try to keep the budget solvent for them in a day to day life of living in the bay area or southern california. as needs arise this is probably where we do the most work. we are there to help support them, get financial assistance for little things that can add to a lot. we have programs with rehab of veterans, housing programs we have for people who need them to get back to their productive
8:21 am
years, job training facilities and things of that nature. it's the day to day things that can make life struggle for service members. >> i know this doesn't cover operation homefront but still with the controversy going on with the veterans administration earlier this year, that had to turn your stomach to see how vets were treated being a vet yourself. >> as a personal aside, not operation home front, it's a tribute to the fact that there are a lot of service members being saved on the battlefield that would not have lived after their injuries even 20 years ago. now what you have is a reintroduction back to society and a need for longer term care with v.a. to your point with operation homefront you will see that a lot in wounded warrior programs, in the job training, rehab, homes for heroes project we have. there is more demand for that than there was at inception because more people are coming
8:22 am
back with injuries. >> the need is greater than ever. tell us how people can be involved, if they would like to donate, whatever it may be. >> we had calls and people had responded generously to the backpacks donations. that has passed. keep your ears open. we'll do the same for a holiday toy drive. operationhomefront.net is the website. >> thank you very much. it's a great organization. we'll be right back. sure... hey canyou bet! this? that's our new interactive speaker wall. 'sup? thinks it's a speak-ing wall. this can even dim your lights. your 3-d-printed girlfriend will love that. real mature. there you go. a laser drone for cats. i wish i had lasers. i don't. pew pew pew...
